"We could have avoided this war."
Robin Cook served notice that prime minister Tony 'Piddles' Blair faces a growing crisis over the failure to uncover weapons of mass destruction.

Seizing on the "breathtaking" admission by Donald Rumsfeld that Saddam Hussein may have destroyed his weapons before the war, the former foreign secretary issued a blunt warning to the prime minister that he took Britain to war on a false basis.
"Saying that they can't find the weapons, and they may never find the weapons, blows an enormous gaping hole through the case for war that was made on both sides of the Atlantic," Mr Cook said last night. "That has to be investigated - a [Commons] select committee is one way of pursuing it."

"Well, speaking for myself,
being gelded DOES have its advantages!"
